Fulfillment fees for Multi-Channel Fulfillment orders

On this page, you will learn how to calculate fulfillment fees for orders placed on websites other than Amazon. You will also learn how to determine your product’s size tier and shipping weight. Learn more about our ship speeds by going to Multi-Channel Fulfillment: Fulfill orders for your sales channels.

Note: You can preview your per-unit MCF fees with our fee calculator. To download the calculator template, go to Multi-Channel Fulfillment and click the Fee Calculator tab. You can also preview your MCF fees by integrating your website with our preview API.

Block orders from being shipped by Amazon Logistics

Given the current carrier restrictions imposed by some channels, we are providing the option to block orders from being shipped by Amazon Logistics for a 5% surcharge (not included in the rates below).

You can block Amazon Logistics in one of two ways. The first way is at the account level by going to your FBA settings, then scrolling down to Multi-Channel Fulfillment settings. Blocking Amazon Logistics at the account level will remove this shipping method from all MCF orders placed after the settings change.

The second way is when placing individual MCF orders via Seller Central or API. Changes to your Amazon Logistics preference when placing individual MCF orders will override your account-level preference for those orders.

Note that blocking Amazon Logistics at either the account or the order level will result in a 5% surcharge.

Calculate the shipping weight


  1. Determine the product volume and dimensions of the item.
  2. Determine the product size tier of the item.
  3. Determine the unit weight of the item.
  4. Determine the dimensional weight and if it is used to calculate the fees for the item.
  5. Use the table below to determine the shipping weight of the item.

Standard size and special oversize

The shipping weight is calculated for each unit using the unit weight. Shipping weight in the small standard and large standard size tiers under 1 lb is calculated by rounding up to the nearest whole ounce. For the remaining size tiers, the shipping weight (see details below) is calculated by rounding up to the nearest whole pound.

Large standard-size items weighing more than 0.75 lb, small oversize, medium oversize, and large oversize

The shipping weight is calculated for each unit by using the greater of the unit weight or the dimensional weight. The dimensional weight is equal to the unit volume (length x width x height) divided by 139. The dimensional weight for oversize items assumes a minimum width and height of 2 inches. The total shipping weight for each unit is rounded up to the nearest pound.

Size tier Shipping weight

(If less than 1 lb, round up to nearest whole ounce. If 1 lb or over, round up to nearest whole pound.)

Standard size (0.75 lb or less) Unit weight1
Standard size (more than 0.75 lb) The greater of the unit weight1 or dimensional weight2
Oversize The greater of the unit weight1 or dimensional weight2
Special oversize Unit weight1

1 The unit weight is the weight of an individual unit in manufacturer-provided product packaging.

2 For large standard-size units weighing more than 0.75 lb and all small oversize, medium oversize, and large oversize units, Amazon uses dimensional weight when it is greater than the unit weight.
